What are the exemptions to retention?

There are three exemptions:

  1. A student is an English Language Learner with less than two years of English instruction may not be retained.
  2. If a student has an IEP in reading or language and the pupil’s parents/guardian agree that promotion is appropriate based on the pupil’s IEP.
  3. A student is in the process of a special education referral or evaluation for placement in special education and/or a student who has been diagnosed as having a significant reading impairment, including dyslexia.
